Upcoming Programs

Pir Vilayat Center for Meditation and Retreat Opening | September 30 | 2:00 PM | On Sunday afternoon, September 30th, at 2:00 we are having our official opening of the Pir Vilayat Center with Aziza Scott. The opening will included memories of Pir Vilayat, practices, and end with refreshments. Everyone is welcome.


Bringing Spirituality into Everyday Life with Himayat Inayati | October 5-7
Pir Vilayat invoked a beautiful world filled with beautiful people and often underscored that the dervish brings to the world a living God – bringing Reality right into the marketplace! Today’s world is brimming with clouds all around us and naturally within us as well. The challenge that Pir Vilayat offers is to unleash that Great Spirit found at the depth of our soul in a manner that illuminates us and is shared with the world around us. This three-day retreat will revisit, celebrate, and apply the teaching of Pir Vilayat – addressing the needs of the young adult entering the world, the mature adult moving through this world, and the older adult making use of the space that is now offered within their life.

New Years Even Retreat with Aziza Scott and Yaqin Aubert | December 28-31
Begin the New Year with a sacred journey under Aziza Scott’s gentle guidance. This time will offer an opportunity to cleanse the heart and mind; to hearken to the call of the soul; to experience the peace that comes from turning within; to return to the struggles and joys of life with energy and a broader perspective. Aziza establishes an atmosphere of sacredness and emotional safety that is healing and energizing. Her humor and common sense provide a grounded approach to spirituality that helps in personal problem solving, inner realization and spiritual growth. Yaqin Aubert will lead the early morning and evening sessions, and will welcome retreatants on Thursday evening. Registration will be up soon!
